An Integrated Territorial Investment (ITI) is a territorial development tool that enables the implementation of a territorial strategy with the aim of providing a response to the specific needs or challenges of this territory. It is, therefore, a management tool, defined in Regulation (EU) Nº 1303/2013, which permits a territorial approach in the development and implementation of public policies.

Likewise, the Atlantic Action Plan, adopted by the Commission in November 2011 and implemented by Spain, France, Ireland, Portugal and the United Kingdom, their regions and the Commission can help create sustainable growth in coastal regions of the Atlantic and drive forward the blue economy.
To respond to this challenge, Spain has developed the Integrated Territorial Investment for the Atlantic Action Plan (ITI Azul), which includes contributions from the ESIF (ERDF and FEMP) for the implementation of the Atlantic Action Plan in the Atlantic coastal regions of Spain, thus promoting its visibility and adoption.
